Andres Mola can be considered one of the best Orientation Team Leaders to have ever worn the illustrious orientation polo. Andres was part of the 2010 team, but his experience with orientation did not stop there. He joined the Orientation Mentor Program mentoring the incoming Orientation Team Leaders and later found himself working in the Office of Orientation as a student assistant. Recently, he was hired as a Transfer Orientation Team Leader. “My experience as an Orientation Team Leader changed my life- it was an experience unlike any other that will always be remembered,” said Andres, reflecting on his experience with Orientation.
Andres has done a lot for the USF community by being highly involved with what USF has to offer to all students. He is a USF Latino Scholarship Recipient and a member of the Arts and Sciences Honor Society. He is also a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars. He volunteers with Discover USF (new faculty and staff onboarding session) and also helps with other volunteer programs that USF has to offer such as Stampede of Service.
Andres has a lot to offer, and we all know he will do great things in life. When asked how has the OTL experience helped him in the world, Andres replied, “Orientation has a way of bringing out things in you that even you didn’t know existed. I walked into Orientation not knowing how to communicate with strangers. I also seemed to have an attitude about things when they didn’t go my way. I left Orientation a leader that is able to communicate with anyone in any situation and I’ve learned to smile about everything. The skills I walked away with impact the way I live through my day to day life.”
